CONTEMPORARY

PROGRAM PATHWAY

1.

6-8 yrs

An introduction to contemporary dance for our youngest students. We will ensure the expected motor skills of this age are developed to a high level, as well as begin to introduce standard contemporary technique and movement. Rolling, jumping, balancing, suspending and traveling are all key movement styles we will progress. The class will be filled with great imagery of animals, shapes and emotions to build a create and adventurous learning environment. We will play games to encourage improvised dancing, and build confident, unique dancers! All beginners and abilities are welcome!

 

2.

9-12 yrs

For this level, we will continue to develop specific contemporary dance technique, including more intricate combinations and musicality. Floor work, spinal isolations, travelling, lower body work, fall & suspension, strength, stamina and flexibility will all be challenged and developed throughout the term. Students will be introduced to more structured improvisational tasks and be encouraged to explore their own personal movement styles. Dancers will become confident with the contemporary dance and all abilities are welcome!

3.

13+ YRS

For our senior class, we will continue to develop specific contemporary dance technique, and dancers will start to engage well with the style and be confident in performing. Floor work, weight bearing, spinal isolations, travelling, lower body work, fall & suspension, turning, strength, stamina and flexibility will all be challenged and developed throughout the term, using exciting and intricate combinations and music. Students will explore improvisation tasks in a confident way and learn about choreography and their own individual way of dancing. All abilities are welcome!

    PROGRESS TRACKING

    ASSESSMENT

    Before we start, we carefully assess each child’s specific skills & performance in their chosen discipline. This helps us know exactly where they belong.

    PROGRAMING

    These programs are designed in advance for every level by experienced, ex-elite coaches. And you, as parents, can see what challenges are coming up in each week of term and which objectives your child will be working on.

    PROGRESS TRACKING

    We then track the development of their skills throughout the term, following which ones are improving—and more importantly, which ones aren’t. This honest and detailed approach helps them improve much more consistently, and perfect skills that last a lifetime.

    EVALUATION

    At the end of each term, we can give them clear targets to focus on, allowing you to help them hone some skills at home, or in 1-1 classes with our specialists. Eventually, when they’re ready, they progress to the next level—or are reallocated to the class that’s best for them.
